Chiefly British: The posture and timing used by players on their shots, often indicative of how they play in their shot selection. A fast , natural player would tend to be more aggressive whereas a less naturally gifted player might have a slow action and tend to be more conservative on the table. It is widely thought that better snooker players get lower to the table with their chins on the cue , have a straight back leg, their elbow hinging in line with the shot , and a straight follow-through after the cue ball has been struck.
